Henry Winter: Tottenham can turn to Chris Hughton if England appoint Harry Redknapp

After Capello, England will want a motivator such as Redknapp, his credentials enhanced by involvement in the Champions League.

Hughton may not be deemed high profile enough yet for Spurs but by 2012, why not? Hughton loves Spurs and coached there for 14 years, including a six-game spell as caretaker in 1998.

Yeah Hughton is a good choice

I'm really starting to like this guy as a manager. They parked the bus in the second half on Sunday, sure, but they don't play ugly football at all.

He's now won at Stamford Bridge, Upton Park and the Emirates. I think he's got it out for the London clubs on their own patch this season. Spurs and Fulham watch out!

Newcastle will be a good team under him. He knows how to get the result and thats the important thing

He is a good tactical manager. He would suit Tottenham's team. I dont see Redknapp leaving soon though
